North Palm Beach artist Joan Lustig’s show, “The Works,” is featured at the South Palm Beach Town Hall through March, with an opening reception on March 7 from 2-4 p.m.

Composition, color, shapes, placement, and surface all are important elements of her work, she said.

“In each medium in which I’ve worked, acrylic, monotype, collage, and jewelry design, composition has been the most important element, but layering and form have also had a role in my striving for a unique voice in the world of art.”

The composition of her work is intuitive. It begins with inspiration, followed by ideas, mood, luck, imagination, and risk as she draws on her experiences to develop the piece. She aims to create works of art that are interactive, challenging the imagination of her viewers.

She studied at Brooklyn College where she was influenced by her instructors Mark Rothko, Ad Reinhardt, Barnett Newman and Jimmy Ernst.

South Palm Beach Town Hall is at 3577 South Ocean Blvd., South Palm Beach. After the reception, viewing is by appointment only. For information, call (561) 588-8889.
